Pres. Barack Obama --- should he be re-elected --- will almost certainly have the opportunity to appoint an ideological clone of Stephen Breyer to the US Supreme Court. Breyer, if anyone's read his words concerning the Second Amendment, has absolutely no regard for the words of the Founding Fathers nor for legal precedent. Breyer is a thoroughly indoctrinated Leftist who believes the US Constitution means whatever he says it does.
A Breyer clone for nomination is almost a certain guarantee, after watching the president nominate Sotomayor and Kagan to the Court. A Leftist majority on the Court will prompt the Brady Campaign and Washington DC to reintroduce their anti-rights jihad, leading to a 5 - 4 decision striking down Heller.
This is the immediate danger America faces; it's up to everyone to go to the polls on election day 2012 to ensure that whoever is president in 2013 is someone who respects the wisdom of the Founding Fathers as well as the US Constitution.
"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." (John Philpot Curran, 1790)
The only candidate I've seen who respects the wisdom of the Founding Fathers is Ron Paul.
Matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration; we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death. Life is a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. And now...the weather! ---- Bill Hicks
